Nurseries and Schools:Mothers Pride - A Strict NO NO
2007-07-20
Name: A Concerned Mother
Hi All,

Trust me , this is not to vent my frustration. This is coming thru concern for young little kids who will gain nothing repeat nothing from this Play School. This I am saying after having first hand bitter experience with my son who went to this Play School for one full year and did not gain anything.I sent my 2 year old son to their school at CP and then later on in Noida for almost one year. Needless to say that he did not learn anything. All they are concerned with is extracting money from you. Paying high fees did not hurt us, but the staff that they have are nothing but young pretty things, with no clue, no compassion, no love , no affection at all as to how to handle kids. It is nothing but a Marketing gimmick. Which play school advertises crazily like them ? None !!! You find that their chairperson Mrs Sudha Gupta has all the gyaan in the world abt how to raise kids. What is not mentioned is that she was just an ordinary housewife of an MCD Official. From where has all this money come to build Play Schools one after another. Yaar paisa lo koi baat nahi, lekin take care of the kids naa. Teach them , play with them, instill some values, some enthusiasm in them.
One whole year of my son got wasted there, that is why I am posting a detailed message here so that other parents like me do not make the same mistake. Your child is precious and deserves better than the cold blooded and careless behaviour he will be subjected to in Mothers Pride.
The school is not open for more then 15 days in any month. 15 is also on the higher side. One day they will have a picnic, the next two days they will be closed , god knows why. When the MCD sealing drive was going on in Delhi and there was no disturbance at all in NOida, even then the Noida play school was closed for nearly 2 weeks. Then they have these innumerable functions in these stadiums in which some vague Minister shall come and innaugurate and then again they will be closed for 2-3 days. All mothers think that their children are special, I might not be an exception. I also think that my child might not be special but definitely he is not a dullard. But in the one year that he went there, he did not learn any English words, no rhymes, no concept abt shapes colors. All that I shared with him at home, is all he knew. We went to talk to his teacher repeatedly and were surprised to find the young girl who was his teacher, could hardly speak a grammatically correct English sentence herself. She also continuosly mixed up the genders with him being used for her, and she for he and so on. So I was like if she herself is like this what knowledge will she pass on to my son.
I would also like to tell you that they stuff 25-30 children per class. Can you imagine what any child in that sort of a claustrophobic environment, at such an impressionable age will learn . They try to give you the crap that they have two teachers taking care of these 25-30 kids. So there are 15 childern per teacher. If that is the case why not have separate classes with 15 children each. That way there will be some focussed attention on these 15 children. They have just one teacher over 25-30 children no matter what they say, and the other one probably just helps once in a while. No wonder my kid did not learn a word there. I have spoken to other parents as well in PTA' s and they also share similar concerns.
Only those people who seem to be taken in by their high profile advertising, eliteness , colorful ambience, AC environment, pretty young girls as staff , seem to be excited abt this Play School. Tell me something, do any of the things mentioned above like advertising, eliteness, colorful and AC environment help in the developement of a child well and instilling good values in him. No. We have never been given such environmnet, but still we are doing reasonbly all right for ourselves, hai naa. According to me what a child needs is just affection, concern , care, attention, and to be lovingly told the rights and wrongs in life. He has to learn to love his school, enjoy it, and then obviously there will be no stopping the learning.
Unfortunately it didn' t happen with my son. Now I have realized my mistake taken him out from Mothers Pride and am sending him to a simpler play school. Good Riddance according to me.I don' t mind all the money that we lost in paying up the huge registration etc at MP, just that the time lost shall never come back. So this is an endeavour for all the impressionable parents there, to request to them to not fall for the marketing gimmicks of Mothers Pride and take a decisison based on your heart and logic....
All the best.

Hi Mom,
But you need to know about the school before joining your kid.But it is your fault joining such two years kid in school is not so good.Because kids need love now and they must enjoy to play and need to be laughing always.

hi, seeing your review, i am saved. i will enroll my kid to another school now. It is sad to see that the schools are using such cheap marketing strategies just to make money. Why dont they think about the kids anymore? Is money the only thing that is left in this life? It is definitely a very bad thing that is happening. we must do something about this.

Thanks for all those who explained the true picture of mother's pride.I am a mother of 1.5 yr old kid and in search of good playschool for him.Your valuable feedback help me and many of other parents like us.I am fully aware of Mother's Pride baby show reality that its a purely marketing strategy but its quite shocking that after taking money also they are not teaching or taking care of children well. One of my colleague also shared exactly same feedback that his son learnt nothing in 1 full year.

Subject:  Presidium school was one of the biggest mistakes of my life!
Based on some of the reviews on this school, I also chose presidium Dwarka for my 4 year old daughter. Couple of months later, my husband got transferred to another country because of which we had to request for withdrawal. The school authority made us run from pole to post for our own hard earned money. We chased them for over 3-4 months for a full and final settlement but they kept ignoring. Even after leaving from India, I continued to follow up with the school head (Nidhi) and accountant Sanjay but without much success. 5 months later, after several emails, phone calls, the school accountant transfers an adhoc amount to my bank account after deducting almost 70% of the total fees and never gave us any explanation. They charged us for the books which were never given to us either. They are a bunch of highly unprofessional people robbing money from innocent parents. Please beware!

i heard another incident about the presidium school that they delayed the transfer certificate and children started their school just before the exam. what a loss it was. schools should understand that education is one of the biggest work they are doing and should not make it as business. everyone should watch chalk and duster moviie. based on the business of the education system.

I am a mother of a 2 year old son and I live in a nuclear family, my son always felt discomfort and used to cry when he was with any person other than me and my husband so I was very nervous whether he will be able to learn in play school away from us. We choose Mother’s Pride and first three days they have where parents can go along with the child to help the child adjust well. I was really happy to see that on the third and the last day my son was feeling like home and enjoying with other children and was even comfortable with the teachers. This was only because of the positive jolly atmosphere, the engaging activities and the teachers who are expert in handling kids. I must say it is the best play school in Delhi.

Mother’s Pride school actually pampers its students. This gifted my daughter with such a gift which was given to all students that too on the occasion of Teacher’s Day. I really like the school taking every effort to bring a smile to the kid’s faces even if it is the day of teachers (Teacher’s Day).
